Unique Penguin Books Earrings Made With Vintage Paperback Covers

**This pair of earrings is made-to-order. They may not be exactly like the photos, due to colour and design variation on the old book covers, but I will happily email a photo to you of your earrings before posting them if required. It will take up to two days to get these made, but let me know if you need them quickly and I'll make sure I get them ready as quickly as possible**

Two little penguins to adorn your ears: the perfect gift for a literary lady. These post earrings are created from a battered old Penguin paperback from the sixties or seventies, taking the iconic Penguin logo in black white and orange and fixing it behind a glass cabochon inside these large, round silver metal earrings. Presented in a little card gift box (as shown in the last picture).

Penguin Books, founded in 1935, revolutionised the world of publishing by making books affordable for everyone. Their book covers are true icons of twentieth-century British design, and these upcycled earrings are a tribute to that classic style. The version of the iconic logo showcased in these earrings first appeared in 1949.

A great gift for a literature student, English teacher, publisher, librarian, author, graphic designer or just about anyone with literary inclinations (or, for that matter, any lover of Antarctic wildlife!).

The earrings are larger than average, and measure approximately 16mm in diameter. There may be some small bubbles visible under the glass when viewed very close-up (a result of the manufacturing process), but nothing that detracts from the charm of the pieces.

Will be shipped out as soon as they are made (can take up to two business days)
